HAMAS - Propaganda Doctrine.

from the Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas)

The following extract is Hamas's comprehensive and quite ingenious plan for the advancement of the Islamic ideological doctrine, using the 'Palestinians' as the catalyst, in order to brainwash and mobilize the Muslim population world-wide against Israel and the Western democracies toward achieving the long standing Islamic goal of world domination – The World Caliphate! It is not a fantasy of a mad man, but a well-thought out plan, which is being implemented right now:

Article Fifteen: The day that enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In face of the Jews' usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised. To do this requires the diffusion of Islamic consciousness among the masses, both on the regional, Arab and Islamic levels. It is necessary to instil the spirit of Jihad in the heart of the nation so that they would confront the enemies and join the ranks of the fighters.

It is necessary that scientists, educators and teachers, information and media people, as well as the educated masses, especially the youth and sheikhs of the Islamic movements, should take part in the operation of awakening (the masses). It is important that basic changes be made in the school curriculum, to cleanse it of the traces of ideological invasion that affected it as a result of the orientalists and missionaries who infiltrated the region following the defeat of the Crusaders at the hands of Salah el-Din (Saladin). The Crusaders realised that it was impossible to defeat the Moslems without first having ideological invasion pave the way by upsetting their thoughts, disfiguring their heritage and violating their ideals...

It is necessary to instil in the minds of the Moslem generations that the Palestinian problem is a religious problem, and should be dealt with on this basis. Palestine contains Islamic holy sites. In it there is al-Aqsa Mosque which is bound to the great Mosque in Mecca in an inseparable bond as long as heaven and earth speak of Isra` (Mohammed's midnight journey to the seven heavens) and Mi'raj (Mohammed's ascension to the seven heavens from Jerusalem during his dream). - For the record, Mohammed never visited Jerusalem. So much for city's significance to Islam!

Remove the Mentally Sick from the Office. Israeli leaders are seriously considering a dormant Saudi plan offering a comprehensive peace between Israel and the Arab world in exchange for lands captured during the 1967 war, according to Defence Minister Ehud Barak. (I just wonder, would Saudi Arabia “seriously consider” the Israeli plan of the creation of an independent state of Palestine on the Sinai Peninsula? Israel must stop playing stupid political games, which give political credibility to the enemies, who have no intention of living in peace with Jews!)

President Shimon Peres met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Thursday in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. During the meeting Peres praised “the spirit of the Saudi Initiative” and said Israel was promoting that spirit in its negotiations with the PA. (The Saudi plan has nothing to do with peace, but with weakening Israel’s position, followed by the destruction of Israel!)

The Saudi Initiative calls on Israel to withdraw completely from all territories regained in the 1967 Six Day War, to release all terrorist prisoners and to accept millions of foreign Arabs as citizens. In exchange, Arab states would agree (and we all know how much their word is worth) to recognize Israel and make peace.

Food for Thought: Talks and discussions about the 'relocation' of Jews from Judea and Samaria are traitorous, self-defeating and immoral, just the same as the forcible removal of Jews from Gaza several years ago. All efforts must be focused on the relocation of the enemy population from all Jewish land! -  Steven Shamrak

Middle Eastern Gisheft (business). The Pentagon agreed to sell Israel $20 billion worth of weapons last year, making Israel the ME region's top arms purchaser. The United Arab Emirates finished second, after the US Defense Department approved an $18 billion arms deal with the country. Saudi Arabia came third with a total of $21 billion in weapons purchases from US and other European companies. (As the US’s business partner, Russia is selling arms to Syria, Iran and other 'friends' of Israel. Both parties benefit from keeping the Middle East unstable and inflamed!)

Safe Haven for Israel’s Terrorist. Two Arabs who played active roles in inciting violence against Jews in Akko at the outset of the Yom Kippur Arab Riots have now fled from the responsibility for their actions and are hiding in the PA controlled area.

Quote of the Week: "According to our rights, we are the elected majority, and a majority in a democracy should control all the Palestinian areas, whether in the West Bank or in the Gaza Strip. This is not an extraordinary issue," "Do you respect democracy? If you respect democracy, the elections in January '06 indicated Hamas is the majority and it should run the administration in Gaza and the West Bank." - Mahmoud Al-Zahar, the second most powerful Hamas leader. – To gain power Democracy was used by the Communists in Russia and Nazis in Germany. Hamas also hates democracy but is using it to wage a full scale Islamic Holy war against Israel!

Why Bother? Last week President Shimon Peres urged the Vatican not to let a contentious reference to World War II Pope Pius XII put off a visit to the Holy Land by the present pontiff. (Why should Israel care if the Pope does not want to visit places which the Church claims are so important to Christianity? It seems that hate toward Jews is still a dominant factor in the Vatican!)

Colombian Cocaine is Linked to Hezbollah. U.S. and Colombian investigators have dismantled an international cocaine smuggling and money laundering ring that allegedly used part of its profits to finance Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based Shiite militia.

Jewish Self-Hate has no Limits. Radical leftists and anarchists marched through Hevron's Jewish Tel Rumeida neighbourhood on Shabbat morning, a week ago, shouting provocative insults and calls for the removal of Jews from the town. The leftists were trying to set off riots among the Arabs of the city against the Jews. (Police did not stop Jewish leftists from entering Hevron to prevent a confrontation, which is often done to Zionists!)

With Ceasefire Like This... The 28th Kassam was fired into Israel from Gaza last Tuesday since the "virtual ceasefire" that began on June 19. The truce has been violated nearly 50 times by Gaza terrorists who also have fired mortar shells and have shot at IDF soldiers patrolling the Gaza separation barrier. Hamas is still holding kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, who was abducted in June, 2007.

A Japanese View of the Palestinians.

by Yashiko Sagamori

If you are so sure that 'Palestine’ is the country, which goes back through most of recorded history, I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about that country of Palestine:

1. When was it founded and by whom?

2. What were its borders?

3. What was its capital?

4. What were its major cities?

5. What constituted the basis of its economy?

6. What was its form of government?

7. Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?

8. What was the language of the country of Palestine?

9. What was the name of its currency?

10. And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?

You are lamenting the 'low sinking' of a 'once proud' nation. Please tell me, when exactly was that 'nation' proud and what was it so proud of?

And here is the least sarcastic question of all: If the people you mistakenly call 'Palestinians' are anything but generic Arabs collected from all over -- or thrown out of -- the Arab (Muslim) world, if they really have a genuine ethnic identity that gives them right for self-determination, why did they never try to become independent until Arabs suffered their devastating defeat in the Six Day War?

I hope you avoid the temptation to trace the modern day 'Palestinians' to the Biblical Philistines: substituting etymology for history won't work here.

The truth should be obvious to everyone who wants to know it. Arab countries have never abandoned the dream of destroying Israel; they still cherish it today. Having time and again failed to achieve their evil goal with military means, they decided to fight Israel by proxy. For that purpose, they created a terrorist organization, cynically called it 'the Palestinian people'…

…In fact, there is only one way to achieve peace in the Middle East. Arab countries must acknowledge and accept their defeat in their war against Israel and, as the losing side should, pay Israel reparations for the more than 50 years of devastation they have inflicted on it. The most appropriate form of such reparations would be the removal of their terrorist organization (population) from the land of Israel and accepting Israel's ancient sovereignty over Gaza, Judea, Samaria…
